Creative Memories Card using the new Freedom stack pack!

 
Finally, I received my latest Creative Memories order!  Included was the new Freedom stack pack.  I used the diecut and papers from the kit.  I put the diecut on pop dots and used the Spellbinders petite scallop circles to create a couple of cut AND embossed layers.  I used a tonic punch to punch the arrow from white cardstock.  The stars are from Michael's brand Recollections and the cardstock is TPC brushed cotton navy blue.  I tried to make this in 10 minutes for Pretty Pink Posh's 10 minute craft dash but this took a bit longer like over 20 minutes...but I was cranking the big shot and cutting all those strips and chalking them.
 
I am entering this into the following challenges:
 
Card sketch #5
 
Independence Day Project
 
DL.ART THANKFUL THURSDAY CHALLENGE #112-- PATRIOTIC
